Local Government

Local Government

Local Government is integral to the State and its communities. Touching all sectors of industry, they lead economic well-being and encourage innovation to its regions.

Planning for sustainability and growth is at the forefront of a Local Government’s considerations. With the challenge of aging infrastructure, growing and diverse populations and reduced capital for investment, Local Governments need to be increasingly innovative. They are highly visible and have significant responsibility for purchasing, procurement and employment in a region.

Local Governments have the added challenge of operating in a constantly changing political and regulatory environment, combined with ever increasing community expectations.
